My Missus has been working this week so I've had the last three days off to look after my Daughter.
Did fuck all on Wednesday has it pissed down all day. Well, not quite true. My Daughter did fuck all apart from watching TV and I did fuck all apart from play Poker.
Yesterday we went out for lunch to a cafe staffed entirely by people with Downs syndrome. I expected the worse but the food was actually superb. I had a chicken Jalfrezi which was as good as in any Indian restaurant I've been. My Daughter had a burger which was fantastic. We then mooched over the park for a while before my Missus came home and the pair of them fucked off to Bristol to see a scooby doo play?
Today we went to meet the Wife dinner time and popped into my favourite place, the Spice Route. They do a buffet which is all you can eat and have a tremendous selection of Indian and Chinese food. After stuffing ourselves my Missus went back to work and me and the girl went to see the Land of the Lost. What a brilliant film. And it has Anna Friel in it as well. The scenes with the T Rex are funny as fuck and it's well worth taking your kids to watch if you've got nothing else to do.
On the poker front I'm trying to clear a FT bonus and gain a Gold Star staus on Ladbrokes. Both are going well although I'm not really making any money.
The Footie season kicks off tonight and Cardiff are home tomorrow. I've had a offer of a ticket and I may venture down there.
I'm going to have a few bets this year and I'll probably slap them on here. I'll be starting off with a bank of £500 and betting 10% every time on doubles or trebles. I'll probably have a few accumulators as well and I'll try to post the bets up before they start.
Had a great hand yesterday for a $200 pot when I hit a straight flush against another guys quads. Can't find the hand history but it was a sweet feeling has the guy had been whining for ages. Needless to say, he went into overdrive after that hand.
On Sunday is the final of the RTR Paris Competition. It looks like a straight battle between Cogs and Snake and should be a good laugh. Next Competition up after this is a trip to Amsterdam. I'll probably enter but tank it as I get into enough trouble in this country without being left to my own devices in sin City. And that's my excuse and I'll be sticking to it.
Edit - have had £50 on Cardiff, Leicester, Northampton and Rotherham not to lose at just over evens. And a tenner on Leeds, Charlton, Rotherham, Bremen, Dortmund and Beyern at 16/1. Also had 5 x £1 trebles on away wins in Scottish Division 2. Good luck if you have a punt.
Winning start and bank now stands at £552.
